We Exceeded Our Goal!

We are extremely excited to announce that not only did we hit our goal just in time, we exceeded by a little over $600! Thank you so very much to the generous donor that helped push us over our goal.


Today is our last day of this project we could not be happier with the support we received from our donors. Every gift made to this project will have a big impact on the Wildlife Ward here at OSU. Thank you again to everyone who gave to this project, we couldn't have done it without you all!

Donor Feature

March 27, 2018

Peter and Kim Erdoes, pictured below, are grateful clients and donors to the Wildlife Fund and Oklahoma State University Veterinary Medical Hospital. In 2017, the Erdoes' helped fund the care for two Great Horned owlets. It's because of great donors like Peter and Kim, that allows the Wildlife Ward to continue providing care to these great animals.

A gift of $500 to the Wildlife Fund will allow you the opportunity participate in an animal release and/or a tour of the Wildlife Ward at OSU (date will vary depending on animal care).   


Wildlife Symposium

March 21, 2018

We wanted to thank everyone who was able to attend the Wildlife Symposium held at the Veterinary Medical Hospital. This was a great way to share the project with supporters of the wildlife ward, students and other faculty members. Please help us share this page via social media and/or by email and help us reach our goal!
